Dear Ms. Womack,

I would like to put forth my resume in response to your Mental Health Nurse opening at your facility.

Taking care of people has always been a top priority for me and as a teenager I took up babysitting to have some extra pocket money. I also took care of my siblings and helped out around the house as much as possible. It was my dream early on to have a career in nursing because I truly enjoy the intrinsic value that is placed on this job. I could not imagine my future in any other way and I set my sights on obtaining the proper education and certifications needed to move forward.

While attending college, I found that I had an aptitude for helping the mentally challenged. I have the patience required to help with their special needs and I have made this my specialty by completing extra psychology courses while in school. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and am a Certified Registered Nurse.

I have over five years of experience in the field and am looking for a permanent position where I can be effective and help those who are mentally challenged. I have great communication skills and work well with a team; qualities that are necessary in this field.

If you would like to discuss my qualifications further, please feel free to contact me at any time. I can be reached at ((222)-405-2884). I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your time and consideration.
